How do you get two installations of Il-2
« on: March 24, 2020, 06:22:01 PM »

Hello all, I was wondering how you would go about getting two installations of Il-2 1946. I would like to do this so I have one with BAT, and one with UP3.3. Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers! :D

Name your first one "Number 1".  Right click on "Number 1" and hit copy.  Hit Paste, right next to "Number 1" and rename it "Number 2".  Like that.  Cheers

What about all the other files? Again, I am trying to install UP3.3 on a different Il-2

Thanks!

Usually you would copy some sort of "base install" in order to install the different modpacks on top of that.

For example, if I needed to start out from scratch again, I'd get out my old CD and install v4.07 onto my PC. Then I'd patch that one up to v4.12.2. After that, as Gubi said, copy and paste the main folder of that install to create two new ones.
Then you have one install that can be used for further installation of BAT, one for the further installation of UP3.3 and one you keep as backup in case you manage to get any of the modded installs into the FUBAR-state ...

You can use Link Shell Extension for some folders : typically, I have various of the games, except for the samples and paintschemes folders, which are in a folder I called "partage". And, with LSE; I make a junction. Saves space in an easy way (and believe me : I always search for easy solutions...).

Thank you all! I will see if I can get a clean install of Il-2 1946 somewhere because I modded my steam version... maybe not the best move in hindsight.

Again, thank you, everyone.

Copy the install out of your steam directory (= to a safe place somewhere else). Let steam reinstall the whole thing. And there you have your clean version to start with.

Two ?

Don't worry, I've got a lot more than two different installs here, too. Just didn't want to list all of them for this example ;)
Your number of different folders seems to be record worthy, tho ...

This. Not "just" for 1946. LSE help so much with staying organized and not wasting space on the other hand.
